Subject: the green glove...noir?
i thought this was an interesting take on film noir. during this era, anything with a foreign accent involved was probably considered noir. i kept hoping Chris would be the femme fatale and when she wasn't, my rating for the film dropped a star.

Subject: Predicatable and hokey
Good scenery and photography.

Subject: Entertaining viewing!
Nice twists with some unexpected resolutions. Solid plot structure helps make this film work. Putting the end at the start of the film worked. There was suspense knowing just a bit but not everything. And then there were the hijinks of the 'Smiths'. Also, the interesting and rugged scenery is made to earn its place in the film. Tight story, well-acted, make for entertaining viewing and an all-round 'keeper'.

Two men climb trecherous mountains and cross a river wearing suits and a hat! The hat stays on.

Subject: Excellent Glenn Ford Movie
This is an entertaining movie with Glenn Ford in fine form. The supporting cast is of a high calibre. The story line moves along nicely. A movie well worth seeing.

Another oldie I missed. Just great. What a cast, nothing like it today.

Subject: Not up to Glenn's standard
This is a very low key and disappointing effort from the usually reliable Glenn Ford, lacking in thrills and suspense. Very Much a poor man's Maltese Falcon

I saw the recent reviews section today, and had to check it out, I do streaming only and this was a fast ride. This an excellant little picture, which I saw one afternoon 50 plus years ago in the theatre. Since I have the benefit of a Catholic education, I seem to remember we were out of school due to it being a "holy day of obligation", so of course a bunch of us took in a matinee. No TV yet down in the mountains. Glenn Ford and George MacReady just superb. I thought that Glynis Johns was the love interest, but was surprised to see that it was Geraldine Brooks instead. Sir Cedric Hardwicke also fine in a small but pivotal role as the parrish priest. A lot of travelogue film, which screams for color, that captures the flavor of France. it's nice mystery and chase filled with intrigue and a satisfying conclusion. For Glenn Ford fans a must see film. For everybody else a good rainy afternoons' viewing.

Subject: Should be called the "Green Artifacts"
The MPEG1 version has so many green square compression artifacts that continually flash on and off (at least on my system) as to render the copy almost unwatchable. Otherwise, a fine movie. Always liked Glen Ford. Good plot and nicely acted.

Subject: Wow!
This is a real thriller. Glenn Ford is at his best and the photography by Claud Renior is fantastic. This print is a little on the dark side, but still the countryside of France comes through well. Sir Cedric Hardwick is the villian in this peice and does a great job. Well worth the time to download.
